2 Samuel 14:14-15

New American Standard Bible

Chapter 14

14 For we will surely die and are like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be gathered up. Yet God does not take away life, but makes plans so that the banished one will not be cast out from Him. 15 Now then, the reason I have come to speak this word to my lord the king is that the people have made me afraid; so your servant said, ‘Let me now speak to the king, perhaps the king will perform the request of his slave.
King James Version

Chapter 14

14 For we must needs die, and are as water spilt on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again; neither doth God respect any person: yet doth he devise means, that his banished be not expelled from him. 15 Now therefore that I am come to speak of this thing unto my lord the king, it is because the people have made me afraid: and thy handmaid said, I will now speak unto the king; it may be that the king will perform the request of his handmaid.
Christian Standard Bible

Chapter 14

14 We will certainly die and be like water poured out on the ground, which can't be recovered. But God would not take away a life; he would devise plans so that the one banished from him does not remain banished.
15 "Now therefore, I've come to present this matter to my lord the king because the people have made me afraid. Your servant thought: I must speak to the king. Perhaps the king will grant his servant's request.
New Living Translation

Chapter 14

14 All of us must die eventually. Our lives are like water spilled out on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again. But God does not just sweep life away; instead, he devises ways to bring us back when we have been separated from him.
15 'I have come to plead with my lord the king because people have threatened me. I said to myself, 'Perhaps the king will listen to me
English Standard Version

Chapter 14

14 We must all die; we are like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be gathered up again. But God will not take away life, and he devises means so that the banished one will not remain an outcast. 15 Now I have come to say this to my lord the king because the people have made me afraid, and your servant thought, ‘I will speak to the king; it may be that the king will perform the request of his servant.
New International Version

Chapter 14

14 Like water spilled on the ground, which cannot be recovered, so we must die. But that is not what God desires; rather, he devises ways so that a banished person does not remain banished from him.
15 And now I have come to say this to my lord the king because the people have made me afraid. Your servant thought, 'I will speak to the king; perhaps he will grant his servant's request.

Chapter 14

14 Pues ciertamente moriremos ; somos como el agua derramada en tierra que no se vuelve a recoger. Pero Dios no quita la vida, sino designa medios para que el desterrado no sea alejado de él. 15 Ahora, la razón por la cual he venido a decir esta palabra a mi señor el rey, es porque el pueblo me ha atemorizado; por eso tu sierva se dijo: “Hablaré ahora al rey, tal vez el rey cumpla la petición de su sierva.

Chapter 14

14 Así como el agua que se derrama en tierra no se puede recoger, así también todos tenemos que morir. Pero Dios no nos arrebata la vida, sino que provee los medios para que el desterrado no siga separado de él para siempre.
15 »Yo he venido a hablar con Su Majestad porque hay gente que me ha infundido temor. He pensado: “Voy a hablarle al rey; tal vez me conceda lo que le pida,
Reina-Valera 1960

Chapter 14

14 Porque de cierto morimos, y somos como aguas derramadas por tierra, que no pueden volver a recogerse; ni Dios quita la vida, sino que provee medios para no alejar de sí al desterrado. 15 Y el haber yo venido ahora para decir esto al rey mi señor, es porque el pueblo me atemorizó; y tu sierva dijo: Hablaré ahora al rey; quizá él hará lo que su sierva diga.
Biblia del Jubileo

Chapter 14

14 Porque de cierto morimos, y somos como aguas derramadas por tierra, que no pueden volver a recogerse; ni Dios hace acepción de personas, mas busca la manera para no echar de si al desechado. 15 Y que yo he venido ahora para decir esto al rey mi señor, es porque el pueblo me ha puesto miedo. Mas tu sierva dijo en si: Hablaré ahora al rey; por ventura hará el rey la palabra de su sierva.
